of the defense spending cuts and we're not going to fold the debt ceiling increase into this deal, and i think the white house was very taken aback by the meagerness of that offer. and so there's a different tone. but if the substance is going to be enough and the time is short, it's really going to be complicated to get this done by the end of the year. >> mosark, if the debt ceiling not wrapped up, the president is not going for it. he does not want to face this twice. >> it's impossible to imagine, that's such a key piece for the white house, just not to have this fight again. it's going to have to be a joint whip operation in the house. i think there will be a period from the time there's a deal amongst the leaders in the bipartisan leadership in the white house, there will be a period from then until it gets passage in the house that will look like where are the votes going to possibly come from. but if stan hoyer and john boehner are willing to do a deal that they can both support, i think they can get to a majority in the house. the key -- the real trick is the two-part thing or maybe t
against israel because their defenses against short-range missiles, in this case, with the iron dome system, but also with the patriot system against possible iranian long-range missiles is going to take leverage away from iran. keep pulling the world together against iran. that's the source of the problem. >> what about the gaza cease-fire? when do hostilities begin again? when does fighting begin again? how much time has been purchased? >> if egypt will take a strong role here to stop the tunnels from being used for weaponry getting into gaza, this could lead to a real plus. >> you know, i read something this week, robert keegan wrote, this is not a question of american influence in the region, it's american interests to take on all of these difficult problems. you talk about syria, the oppression there. conn condoleezza rice arguing in an op-ed this morning in "the washington post" that the u.s. has to do something, yes, it's risky, but there has to be more involvement. the breakdown of the middle east state system is a graver risk than the risks of getting involved in syria. iran
on the u.s. consulate in libya. however as brian mooar reports, her defense failed to convince her republican critics. >> reporter: embattled u.n. ambassador susan rice went to capitol hill to explain what they knew and now knows about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. but she failed to silence her republican critics. >> all i can tell you, that the concerns i have are greater today than they were before and we're not even close to getting the basic answer. >> reporter: rice was accompanied by acting cia director michael morell who helped explain the flawed talking points rice repeated in talk show appearances days after the libya attack. in a statement rice said we certainly wish we had perfect information, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. >> she said what she believed was true and she was under no political influence from the white house. >> reporter: republicans aren't buying that. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> reporter: rice is also defending her own potential nom
. the companies that are getting huge defense contracts are now experts on what we ought to do with the budget. and they are there protecting their own backside. that's the only way i see it. they don't want to give up any revenue whatsoever. as for social security, its solvency is extended into 2033. do we have to do anything about that right now? do we need to raise the cap? >> no. and i think any move to put social security into this deal is going to hemorrhage a lot of support. so i think that's a nonstarter. the defense budget has to be part of this too. some of these rich guys are willing to put defense on the table. good for them. some may not be so wild about that. and if defense isn't part of the deal, then again, it's not a serious deal. >> and i have to point out, these are the big business leaders that are getting intervinte interviewed talking about the insecurity in the economy. i don't know. the early reports is that black friday was pretty good. the weekend was strong and cyber monday ain't bad either. so the fear talk doesn't seem to be playing on the consumer. e.j. dionne, gr
is essentially acting in self-defense. >> self-defense, which would be true if he were the president of nicaragua. but as president of the united states of america, president reagan even after the huge victory could not convince the united states of america that waging war in nicaragua would actually be self-defense. it would be in our self-interest. so president reagan when he couldn't persuade the country, instead he would wage the war in secret. that secret war in central america led to the huge second term failure of the ronald reagan presidency, which was the iran contra affair. it's amazing that in that scandal he avoided impeachment. 14 administration officials up to and including the defense secretary were indicted. the only reason most of them staid out of prison is because poppy bush pardoned them. it was a disaster. that was ronald reagan's second term after he got reelected with a map that looked like this. when fdr got reelected to his second term, the map was almost the exact opposite. this was 1936. fdr did better than reagan. he got 523 electoral votes. his opponent got 8 electora
bombing that took place in tel aviv. that blast happening as the bus was passing the defense ministry there. hamas leaders praised that bombing calling it a natural response to israeli massacres in gaza. in gaza, however, people took to the streets in celebration of that explosion in israel. the white house condemning the bus bombing, going on record saying that the u.s. will stand with its israeli allies. joining me from cairo, nbc news correspondent jim maceda. jim, explain to all of us the reaction to secretary clinton's visit to the region and the impact that her presence has brought to the negotiations for a cease-fire. >> reporter: first, the reaction has been one of anxiety, anticipation, and of deep hope that secretary of state hillary clinton can now broker or help to broke err deal. they certainly don't want war right next door. many are asking where america has been for these past eight or so years. i think the overall feeling is one of anticipation, that something hopefully now can move forward. in terms of her impact today, she's met already with president morsi. she's al
with honeywell will get big defense contracts. some former lawmakers including msnbc political analyst ed rendell for full disclosure are on the group's steering committee. the real issue is the position taken by these corporate ceos. joining me now is e.j. dionne, washington post columnist and author of the book "our divided political heart." good to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you. >> this looks like a publicity tour taking aim at earned benefits instead of corporate welfare. it's like these guys have the power to go out and command the camera and the exposure and to make share case that everybody else is the problem but their corporate welfare. how do you see it? >> well, i tell you, ed, one of the things that really bothers me is when these guys start talking about raising the retirement age and what do they have in mind? they have in mind people like ceos, people like us who talk and write for a living, i hope i'm talking to you for a good long time, but they don't think the about what this means for people who might work on their feet all day at a mcdonald's. i'd like to c
. this is about defense cuts, discretionary spending, and it's about tax cuts. only if the democrats agree to bring in the programs for the elderly and poor and middle class would they become part of the discussion. and there's a strong faction among democrats who are saying do not do that. you know, social security is not part of this problem. so it should not be part of the discussion. harry reid, in fact, has been extremely firm on that. he said i will not be part of discussions that include social security as part of this bargain. so if they stick to that, then they won't be. >> yeah, there's so many moving pieces. susan, today, the president's going to meet with small business owners. friday he's going to montgomery, pennsylvania, to visit a small business that will be impacted. very campaign like stuff. what's he trying to do here? >> yeah, who is he not meeting with this week? that would be congressional -- that would be members of congress, especially those house republicans would be the critical partners on this. so he's trying to take a very different approach than he took in the
, a republican nightmare will occur. all income tax rates will go up and defense spending will be cut by 600 billion. other spending, some of it dear to republicans, will also be cut by another 600 billion. the fiscal cliff is much scarier to republicans than it is to democrats. so, the president and his allies must continue to make republicans believe they are willing to go off cliff. senator durbin simply said if we do go off the cliff or the curb on january 1st, we have to be able to quote stop economic growth to prevent us from stopping at the economic growth and hurting everyone. in other words, we have to then quickly craft a legislative deal that can stop the damage to the economy that would occur if we went off the cliff and stayed off the cliff. john boehner recognizes that the fiscal cliff is the president's leverage, but boehner believes he has leverage, too. politico reported this morning president barack obama made a demand of how john boehner near the end of their first white house meeting on the fiscal cliff, raised the debt limit before year's end. boehner responded, quote, t
critics. her day one defense of her response in the benghazi attack and fence mending efforts to put it bluntly didn't go so well. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> i want to say that i'm more troubled today. >> i'm told the meeting itself didn't go as badly as it sounded there. that said graham compared rice to john bolton who democrats blocked after bush nominated him to be u.n. ambassador. remember, he ended up being a recess appointment. asked by defense news whether he'll put a hold on rice's nomination if she is appointed graham said, quote, oh, absolutely. i would place a hold on anybody who wanted to be promoted to any job who had a role in the benghazi situation. now rice clearly did not have the day the white house envisioned. the question is whether her outreach went so badly that it somehow scares the president and the white house and they decide it's not worth the heavy lift to nominate her. ultimately everyone believes rice is confirmable. the questio
more in taxes next year, coupled with $100 billion in cuts to domestic and defense spending. now, since the reagan era, most republicans have pledged not to raise taxes. as mike viqueira reports, there are signs of flexibility on both sides of the aisle. >> reporter: it's a pledge almost all republicans have signed. to oppose tax increases of any kind. that once solid wall was showing crass. >> the pledge you signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago is for that congress. the world has changed, and the economic situation is different. >> reporter: but republicans insist in return for defying party doctrine, democrats must agree that changes in social security and medicare. >> i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> reporter: activists on the left are lining up to oppose those reforms, but the president has put them on the table before. during last year's failed talks on a grand bargain and more recently in his first post-election press conference. >> we have to continue to take a serious look at how we reform our

her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us, and i will listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi, but i can tell you this. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> smart of her to call the meeting. acting cia director michael morrell will accompany rice during today's meeting, fueling speculation that the ambassador is topping president obama's list to replace secretary of state clinton. some say the president could announce his choice this week. >> i'm still holding out. i think it may be jill kelley who gets the nod. >>> a new report says the assad regime received help from russia as international sanctions are beginning to cripple the syrian economy. eight round-trip flights bet
want to put that out there, put them on the defensive. and by the way, if they reject a fair deal, it makes it easier for us to deal with our own politics because we've showed that the problem is more than tehran. >> david ignatius, the same question i asked richard haass. do you think the iranians will take a threat from the united states more seriously than saddam hussein, or noriega or other dictators took in years past? >> the iranians have believed for years, certainly ever since i visited tehran in 2006, that the u.s. is not prepared to go to war to stop iran's nuclear program no matter what we may say or threaten. they just don't think -- they think it would be crazy for us to do it and that we're not crazy. i think an additional problem for president obama in making his policy by any means necessary credible is that this presidential campaign showed clearly to me the absolute defining moment was the third debate on foreign policy. it showed that the american people do not want to go to war again. the two candidates, romney and obama, were identical in expressing quite rest
the national defense he headquarters. israeli police confirm that an explosive device detonated but say it was not a suicide attack. the white house is calling the attack against israeli civilians outrage o outrageous. the united kingdom is condemning the, quote, shocking violence. the eight-day conflict between israel and hamas has claimed the lives of more than 130 palestinians and five israelis. despite hopes of a ceasefire, tuesday ended as the conflict's deadliest day. secretary clinton who rushed to the region to try to prevent an escalation of the conflict is in cairo to meet with egyptian president mohamed morsi who is key to brokering any deal. it's her final stop on an emergency round of shuttle diplomacy that also include meetings in israel and the west bank. for the latest nbc's stephanie gosk joins us and ayman mohyeldin. a report of a tel aviv bus explosion. is there any indication that the israelis now are looking at possibly having a short-term truce or want to hold out long er for a longer deal? >> reporter: well, we don't have a truce. there's a lot of talk yesterday t
defense. the come after me defense of susan rice the week after the election. what the republicans want, well, many of them are very upset with the presentation, of course, that susan rice gave on the meet the press and the other sunday shows just six days after the september 11th attack on the american government facility in benghazi where she said that it was likely a spontaneous reaction to the anti-us lame video and references in classified events that said it was a terrorist act. many republican senators want to say why she went forward with the response. even if it was redakted by the intelligence agencies and confuse agent that yesterday. why she went ahead and gave that version of events that they said she should have known was not true. you heard susan collins there. that perhaps is a big impediment to any nomination. not a red meat republican by any means saying she has serious reservations and didn't say she would block the nomination but wanted to hear more. here's more from jay carney just moments ago. >> the president has not made any personnel decisions that i can announc
, will the cease-fire hold. even defense minister said he does expect the agreement to be honored. on past experience, it could be a short term cease-fire, waiting to see. we have heard the israeli army is beginning a drawdown of its army reserve troops at the border they're be waiting to see if the cease-fire does last. the schools have resumed operations in the south. all schools win 25 miles of the border last week have been closed and still haven't been opened again, waiting to see if the cease-fire really does hold. at the moment, this agreement really has a lot to be negotiated, a lot to be worked on. the only agreement really so far is quiet for quiet the israelis have stopped attacking and israel has stopped attacking. will it release its hold and grip on boarder crossings to gaza, also to be negotiated in this same sense, the question is will israel stop -- will israel stop its attacks on gaza. all waiting to be seen. meanwhile, peace for the time being. veronica. >> that is some good news. martin fletcher live for us this morning from tel-aviv. thank you. >>> susan rice speaks ou

. if you are going to have a missile defense, it has to deal with short range rockets, medium range rockets and longer range ones. iron dome is effective against the longer range. and in conjunction with working with us, they will be more effective against the medium range and longer range. still, the radar systems that integrate these operations are effective for all and the israelis got a very good demonstration of that, as did we. we helped in the development of this. also it helps us as we look at some of the rocket threats that our forces can face around the globe and particularly in the region. >> dennis, i know you've been following that which is going on in tahrir square and elsewhere in egypt. you have president morsi facing trouble in his own backyard. does that undermine his ability to be an effective mediator in any general area of middle east negotiations? >> well, it certainly undercuts a little bit of the luster that one saw emerge for president morsi this week. suddenly he thrusts egypt on to a role that historically it has played but did not play the last few years of the m
they are not afraid to watch defense spending get gouged and taxed go up on every american if budget deal doesn't satisfy their priorities. in other words, they'd rather walk the country off the cliff than watch president barack obama gave on long-held liberal priorities. to call the republicans bluff on this? >> the progressives are clearly feeling their oats at this point. they are feeling good about the election but i think also obama feels like he gave away too much or was too conciliatory last time around. the last debt crisis we had made the republicans look back. it hurt their image and you can see them trying really hard this time to paint the picture as they are the reasonable ones, it's obama being unreasonable. that said, what we're probably looking at is they are going to kick this can down the road and give us a short-term resolution to get past january and then do this all again next year. >> but at the same time, jared, the public is supporting the progressives or the democrats on this. polling shows this. 72% republicans should compromise. 72% of the of the people polled. 67% wa
secretary of defense instead, i say woe be unto any feasible rival for that gig. somebody who might get that cabinet position ahead of him too. which republicans would please like to happen. and you know what? maybe this is nuts. maybe this is nuts. maybe this is why to simplistic. but maybe this makes more sense than the contention we're supposed to believe, which is that two active investigations, multiple briefings, a statement from the president, a statement from the u.n. ambassador, a closed-door, one-on-one meeting with that ambassador and with the director of the cia have not given john mccain enough opportunity to ask whatever questions he wants to ask about remarks made on a sunday morning talk show two and a half months ago. maybe this makes more sense than that. joining us is somebody more level headed, andrea mitchell, host of "andrea mitchell reports." thank you for being here. >> i love your theories it makes as much sense as anything happening in washington about this potential nomination. >> i wanted you to be here in part because. i knew you would debunk my theory. whic
aren't going to come out of gaza towards israel. that is their stipulation. we heard the defense minister ehud barak say today that right out of the gate, what they want most likely is something like a 24-hour period where they can see whether or not hamas is capable of stopping those rockets. so negotiations ongoing and we are hearing some more kind of rumors and hopefulness coming out of cairo that perhaps a cease-fire deal has been reached, but we are waiting to hear confirmation from that and secretary clinton. >> how important is secretary clinton in that process, both in providing some calm, relative calm in that there won't be a ground invasion according to a lot of reports while she is there and she can reach out to egypt in a different way that netanyahu? >> well, there are a lot of people in this region that want the u.s. more involved in this process and for the last four years -- well, arguably the last 12, the u.s. administrations haven't paid too much attention to the palestinian be/israel conflict and now you have -- you have secretary clinton on the ground here se
streets, quiet, a sense here there's nothing much to celebrate. the israeli defense minister said this is a cease-fire that he believes will be recognized and enforced but also said, judging by experience, it may not last very long. that's what we have here in israel. skepticism about the cease-fire. great hope it will last. another development this morning, the israelis on the west bank arrested about 55 members of the hamas and other islamic militant organizations in gaza, saying that they represented the terrorist threat and that follows the bus bomb yesterday here in tel aviv. the first bus bomb, first bomb attack in tel aviv in six years. that's a reminder that although israel now has a cease-fire in gaza and everyone's working on maintaining the cease-fire and enforcing it, israel has plenty of other problems, too, it needs to face up with. >> martin fletcher, thank you. >>> back here at home, millions of people hitting the roads, the runways and malls over the next 72 hours. what can we expect from mother nature? meteorologist bill karins has the turkey day forecast. happy

marriage and what does todd akin plan to do next? first, israeli defense minister barack announced he is quitting politics. he served as prime minister and said he will stay on the job until the january 22nd election but would then take time to concentrate on his personal life. there had been talk that if he continued in the coalition government he might succeed netanyahu. remember, in israel to be a prime minister, you have to have lost as prime minister once. back here at home, congresswoman shelly capito will announce she is running for the seat held by jay rockefeller. capito's bid could put pressure on rockefeller who is 75 years old. he has indicated so far that he does plan to run again in 2014. there's always been speculation, though, that he may decide to retire. it's a big issue for senate democrat in 2014. a lot of veteran senators up like rockefeller, tom harkin, baucus, guys there three, four, five terms. the u.s. supreme court will decide whether it should consider legalizing gay marriage nationwide. there are several cases they could hear, some challenging the federal d
to government spending could impact public safety. >> i think you should be worried if you have a defense job and we all ought to be worried whether we are dependent upon other aspects of the federal budget. whether we're worried about the regulation of our food safety, whether we're worried about our borders being secure, whether we're worried about fbi being supported, it's all affected by sequestration. >> joining me now, cnbc washington reporter eamon javers. you heard the numbers we just ran down. what is the short-term tangible consequence if we don't get action on the fiscal cliff. >> cote is right, it does cause uncertainly. life is uncertain and so they know that there's going to be this issue and that washington is going to wrestle with it. in the short term, the very short term, i think actually some of the hype around the fiscal cliff is a little overblown, particularly because the first couple of days or week or so after we go over the fiscal cliff we won't see all that many impacts. all these tax and spending impacts take months to go into effect. it doesn't impact the economy u
conference he had last week or so where he gave a full-throated defense of her and said to both senators john mccain and lindsey graham, don't go after her. if you have an issue with someone, come after me. and so that's the clearest indication yet that susan rice is probably at the top of the nomination heap. >> indeed. jonathan capehart, lynn sweet, thank you both. >> thank you. >>> next, want to avoid holiday traffic, daily commutes, and offices altogether? run for congress. stay with us. with verizon. this monday online only. get the droid razr by motorola in cranberry, free. or a white 7-inch samsung galaxy tab 2, just $99.99. this holiday, get the best deals on the best devices on the best network. exclusively at verizon. >>> after a brief break for thanksgiving, the majority of americans made the trudge first back home and then back to work this morning, but this did not include our esteemed elected members of capitol hill. oh, no. with an urgent need to address the fiscal cliff, support our economic recovery and consider the unrest in the middle east, congress has the day off. in fact
takes rice's defense acting cia director mike morell will accompany her on those senate meetings. remember it's mike morell who wrote the unclassified talking points from the intelligence community that rice was briefed on to use publicly for the sunday talk shows. last night on fox news graham said he intends to ask rice some very direct questions. >> she asked to meet with us, and i will listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. i can tell you this, the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11. the more i look into what they were telling us on the 16th, the 18th, and the 25th, are days after the attack, the more it sounds like a political smokescreen rather than a confused situation. >> mccain told nbc news the following. my concerns are obviously that she told the american people things that were patently false. people don't go to demonstrations with mortars and rocket propelled grenades. ayotte said the meeting is crucial to determine whether rice is fit to be secretary of state. quote, i would hold the n
strong defense of had her at his press conference last week. beyond that, we really don't have all that much. i would note something and want to give credit where it is due, mark murray, the deputy political director, pointed it out, saw it on twitter, we focus on ayotte, graham and mccain but remember, democrats may not need those three votes to confirm susan rice if she is put forward. they need probably five to seven republicans, maybe they can find them elsewhere. i'm not saying that i know that for a fact, but let's not assume that even if the three of them are opposed that she could never be confirmed. >> they can block it by using a hold. >> any one of them can. >> yeah. >> yeah, kelly. this is not the kind of confirmation you want to send your top diplomat out. that's not the launch pad for a successful tenure as secretary of state. and, of course, waiting in the wings, john kerry, who we understand the white house will nominate to be defense secretary. i'm told he would accept that post even though he would prefer to be secretary of state. we've got to go but thank you ver
be a little quiet at the table, probably not as -- >> or defensive. >> yeah. very defensive, you know, about 47% or gifts or whatever things mitt romney may have said. >> so i guess my question is, anna, do you just have to declare a truce and say this is off limits? what do you do for family harmony and for digestive purposes? >> normally i think there's a way to talk about any issue that's interesting as long as you keep the boundaries down. at thanksgiving dinner so close to the election, this might be too hard to do. might be easier to pass on this one. have a couple of outs, you know, an exit strategy. >> i thought you were going to say have a couple of drinks. >> i was going to say that will make it worse. uncle steve at the table. sorry. >> no. exactly. if you get cornered by somebody, have an exit strategy, have a question before hand ready to go to kind of redirect conversation because frankly we've all already voted. you're not going to change anybody's mind. >> has it gotten worse in recent years, jonathan, in part because of people like you who write columns that get us all worke
